Senator Chuck Schumer raised eyebrows from the US Capitol Thursday when he claimed that “each year will be worse than COVID” if the country fails to act on Climate Change.
“COVID was horrible. But if we do nothing on climate, starting within a few short years from now, each year will be worse than COVID,” said Schumer.

Schumer’s comments come hours after officials in DC reinstated the COVID-19 mask mandate.
Starting at 5AM July 31st, everyone in the District of Columbia over the age of two must wear face masks when indoors in all public buildings.
“We will continue to do what is necessary to keep D.C. safe,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser.
News: DC will again require masks in all indoor settings, starting Saturday. Mayor Bowser’s order will apply to everyone over age 2, vaccinated or unvaccinated.

“Beginning this Saturday at 5AM, I will issue the directive that people over the age of 2 must wear a mask indoors, regardless of their vaccination status. I know D.C. residents have been very closely following public health guidelines, and they will embrace this,” added the Mayor.

The House of Representatives made a similar decision just days ago.
Masks will once-again be required for all people in the House of Representatives just one month after relaxing the rules to comply with new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control.
“To be clear, for meetings in an enclosed US House of Representatives controlled space, masks are REQUIRED,” a letter from the Capitol Hill physician, Brian Monahan, reads.
“For the Congress, representing a collection of individuals traveling weekly from various risk areas (both high and low rates of disease transmission), all individuals should wear a well-fitted, medical-grade filtration mask (for example an ear loop surgical mask or a KN95 mask) when they are in an interior space,” Monahan added.

House Minority Leader called the motivation behind the decision political shortly after the announcement, saying Democrats want to “continue to live in a perpetual pandemic state.”
“Make no mistake — The threat of bringing masks back is not a decision based on science, but a decision conjured up by liberal government officials who want to continue to live in a perpetual pandemic state,” posted McCarthy on social media.
The mask requirement will not apply to the Senate, where all but four members have confirmed publicly that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
BRAIN FREEZE: Al Gore Demands Senate BLOCK POMPEO over Climate ‘DENIAL’
Former Vice President and climate change crusader Al Gore urged the Senate to reject President Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State Thursday, claiming Mike Pompeo was unqualified because he “denies the climate crisis.”
Gore took to twitter to slam Trump’s pick to lead the State Department, saying the former CIA chief has been “doing the bidding” for fossil fuel corporations for years; adding the American people “deserve better.”
“Senators should reject Mike Pompeo’s nomination to be Secretary of State. He denies the climate crisis, and has been doing the bidding for fossil fuel interests his whole career. The American people deserve better,” tweeted Gore.

The former Vice President’s comments come months after the global warming alarmist feverishly attempted to explain a brutally cold winter throughout the Northern Hemisphere; bizarrely suggesting that global warming is now causing “global cooling.”
BRAIN FREEZE: Al Gore Demands TRUMP’S RESIGNATION Over ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ Inaction
Former Vice President and climate-change crusader Al Gore called for President Trump’s immediate resignation this week; saying the Commander-in-Chief should step down over his failure to address global warming.
Gore slammed the President during a recent interview, saying “My only message would be resign. I don’t think he’s prepared to listen to advice about the importance of clean air and clean water.”

Gore’s message on climate-change left millions of Americans scratching their heads over the last several months, with the former VP struggling to explain the bitter-cold winter temperatures that slammed the majority of the US in January.
